Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event which aims to shine a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
All the Wind in the World by Samantha Mabry
Release Date: October 10th 2017
Sarah Jacqueline Crow and James Holt work in the vast maguey fields that span the bone-dry Southwest, a thirsty, infinite land that is both seductive and fearsome. In this rough, transient landscape, Sarah Jac and James have fallen in love. They’re tough and brave, and they have big dreams. Soon they will save up enough money to go east. But until then, they keep their heads down, their muscles tensed, and above all, their love secret.
When a horrible accident forces Sarah Jac and James to start over on a new, possibly cursed ranch called the Real Marvelous, the delicate balance they’ve found begins to give way. And James and Sarah Jac will have to pay a frighteningly high price for their love.
Samantha Mabry’s debut book, A Fierce and Subtle Poison, was a brilliant magical realism read, and one that is still really underappreciated. Magical realism is a growing genre, and one that I’m still discovering, so I’m always on the lookout for more books I can pick up.
All the Wind in the World sounds like a beautiful and enchanting story, the few pre-release reviews there already are are all positive, and if it’s anything like Samantha Mabry’s first book I’m sure it will be another brilliant addition to the magical realism genre.
What do you think of All the Wind in the World? Is it a must on your to-read list, or are there any other books you can’t wait for the release date of? Let me know in the comments and let me know if you took part in this week’s Waiting on Wednesday as well.
